| I was born and raised in the Czech Republic. |
After studying directing and screenwriting at Film Academy I worked in Prague’s film and theater industry for several years. I came to San Francisco in 2003 where I continued my education.
I am a storyteller.
I dedicate most of my time to international reporting with focus on minorities (mostly LGBT), women and religion. I collaborate with variety of NGOs documenting their humanitarian efforts while working on my independent projects.
The photographs I make are visual testimonies of people within their own society.
I freelance now (mainly REUTERS and Czech magazine Lide a Zeme) and contribute my work to publications worldwide.
